Simone Biles’ mother has said she wants to appear in court for the criminal sentencing of former Team USA gymnastics physician Dr. Larry Nassar whom her daughter has accused of molestation.

Biles, the record holder for the most gold medals won by an American female gymnast in a single Olympic game, spoke Monday about the sexual misconduct committed by Nassar.

Nassar has pled guilty to 10 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Michigan’s Ingham County Circuit Court, and is in court this week hearing the testimonies of an estimated 98 victims as part of his criminal sentencing process.

While it is unclear whether Biles’ testimony will be used this week, her mother publicly expressed a desire to attend the proceedings on behalf of her daughter.
